Japanese fashion label Kapital introduces a selection of fleece jackets designed for the Fall/Winter 2018 season. It stays true to its heritage by using a series of traditional Japanese production methods. The seasonal capsule is comprised of jackets, vests, sweaters, and more -- all of which are complete in bold patterns.

The standout item is without a double the fleece jacket with zippered enclosures, created with Japan's 'Dogis' cloth material in mind. It is a fabric that is often used for martial arts, blending 'sashiko' and 'hishisashi,' which are traditional stitching techniques. It also boasts reversible elements and zippered pockets. Another notable item is the sweatshirt complete in a whirlpool design inspired by the Ainu people in Hokkaido -- they believed that the shape would protect them from evil spirits.
